However, It is still thought that these complex modalities for managing critically ill patients is restricted to metros. Moreover awareness among healthcare professionals is crucial who are primarily managing these critically ill patients for timely advice for ECMO support. The best way to create awareness and encourage for research among the professionals is conferences. However, this is always challenging to organize an international event beyond the metros.
